Picture StoryMy forefathers came from the USA having emigrated from Scotland and Ireland in the 18th century. Mostly they landed in Virginia and over the next couple of hundred years drifted west and settled in the Carolinas. The area is renowned for Great Smoky Mountains National Park being part of the Blue Ridge which, itself is a subsidiary of the Appalachian mountain chain which is the major geological feature of eastern North America. The evening was perfect and the views spectacular and the surrounding peaks receding into the distance in ever transparent shades of smoky blue, hence the name Smoky mountains.
